CciKBRAfED Maniaor. —Dr. Winslow,
; inbkK'.vork on “Obscure Diseases of the Brain,’’
seem.: itclined to think that many historical
i charasieis, “cele&mted either for their crimes,
' biiitaEty, tyranny, or vice, were probably of
unsound mind, ant that in many undetected,
unrecognized, unporceived, .mental disease, in
all probability arose from cerebral irritation or
physical ill health." Fredeiick William, the
I father of Frederick -the G reat, the debauchee
and a drunkard, who -treated.his children with
i maiked cruelty, compelling 'them to eat the
most unwholesome and disgusting food, and
crowned has hospitality fey spitting into it, suf
| fered from -hypochondriasis and great mental
> -depression, .once attempting suieide. Judge
.Jeffreys was tortured by a cruel internal mala
dy, aggravated by intemperance. Damien per
sisted in declaring that had be been bled in the
morning, as he wished, he never would have
attempted the aeßassinatien of Louis XV. Ca
ligula commenced his reign with mildness, and
it was after a violent attack of bodily illness,
he began his career of cruelty, vice, and crime.
Bean Swift had a singular presentiment of his
imbecility. Dr. Young, walking one day with
Dean Swift, some short o'istance from Dublin,
suddenly missed Dean, who had lagged behind, i
He found him at a distance gazing in a solemn j
state of abstraction at the top of a lofty elm, ■
whose head had been blasted by a hurricane.
He direettd Dr. Young’s attention to the sum
mit of the tree, and, heaving a heavy sigh
exclaimed : “I shall be like that tree, I shall
dieat fl c tvp first.’’ These words convey a
solemn waining, in these days of fast living and
perpetual mental toil. It behooves us all to
take care we do not “die at the top first,” when
a. little attention to what is going on witbin
us, will keep up a healthy circulation of the
sap.

‘ Ijp H E COMING DRAFT.
I
! IMPORTANT NOTICE
TO ALL WHO AKE ENROLLED AS
LIABLE TO DRAFT
I
IHE NEW YORK COUNTY COMMITTEE ON VOLVN.
. TEERING have reason to believe that a further call te
i likely soon to be made by the President for men.
i HPherto great complaint hae teen made that the
quotas demanded of the County of New York have been
excessive.
As all quotas are based upon the Enrollment, it is evi
dent that no relief can be expected except by a redaction
of the enrollment to its proper standard.
Although appeals have hitherto been made to citizens
to correct the enrollment, there has been little or no dis
position shown by the public to discharge Ms duty in this
particular.
It is evident at this duty must be performed by the
public authorities, or it will not be performed at all
By consent of the War Department and the advice of
the Governor, the New York County Committee on Vol
unteering has determined to undertake the herculean
labor of correcting the Enrollment of the County.
No means will be spared to make this correction ther
ough and satisfactory both to the people end the Govern
ment.
Qnr only onject is to correct the Enrollment, end
place it at a proper standard, and every citizen owes
it alike to himself and his neighbor to assist in this
work.
In addition to other means which will be trough
into requisition for the accomplishment of thia object,
a complete copy of the existing Enrollment of each
Ward or Election District will be printed &nd furnished
to every enrolled citizen of the Ward or Election Dis
trict.
This will prevent the excuse which so many who are
exempt have made, that they did not knowthey were en
rolled, and hence did not attend to having their names
taken from the roll.
It will also afford the opportunity for every man en
rolled to see whether or not his neighbor enrolled, and
enable him to secure that those liable and nut enrolled
shall be put down.
Every person enrolled is requested to aid in the gigantic
labor which we have undertaken, bv complying with the
following conditions:
I. Whenever a name appears of any person who is net
enrolled but liable, notice of the fact should be given to
the Provost-Marshal of the District, by any person who
may be cognizant of the fact, in order that the same may
be recorded.
IL Whenever a name appears of any person who has
removed, notice of the fact should be given at the Provost
Marshal’s office, that the name may be stricken from the
roll of that District, and recorded where it properly be
en gs.
111. Whenever a name appears which is known to be
fictitious, or any one is a ware that the person indicated
not a resident as described, notice should be given at the
Provost-Marshal’s office, that the name may be vtrickvai
from the roll.
IV. Whenever cause of exemption exists for any 1 eason,
notice should be given to the Provost-Marshal o 4 the Dis
trict by the exempt person ffimself, that the name may be
stricken from the roll.
The following are the recognized causes of exemption:
1. Over 45 years of age.
2. Under 20 y ears yf age.
3. Being an alier. and never having voted.
4. Having furnished a Substitute in anticipation of the
Draft.
5. Having been drafted and furnished a Substitute.
6. Having been drafted and paid commutation.
7. Having been drafted and received a certificate of per
manent physical disability.
8. Being permanently physically disabled.
9. Having eerveu ‘wo years, ic the Army or Navy during
the present War, and been lionorably discharge I.
In acid ition to this, so far as possible, every enrolled
man will be waited upon personally by authorized agents,
deputed to ascertain the liability of all enrolled men, to
have those improperly enrolled taken off, and to add
those not on, but who should be enrolled.
As’titis is an effort to correct and not to increase the en
rollment, it is to the tele rest of every person to rive cor*
rect ano true answers to any and all questions which may
be 2ui to them, and any person declining to answer, or
giving false answers, render themselves Hable to arreM
ar.d imprisonment.
This is probably the last attempt which will be made to
secure a correct ■enrollment of the County of New York.
Uobe successful, the co operation of every resident of
'this city and county is absolutely required.
The Governiaent officials have evinced a disposition
afford us every facility to attain, the object in view. If,
therefore, through the Indisposition and apathy of the
public, who are most concerned, this effort to correct the
Enrollment prove abortive, and further excessive quota
are demanded of us, because of the incorrectness of the
Enrollment, the people of this City and County will b
themselves responsible, and they will have none but
themselves to blame.

A Magnificent Peoject. —The Spring
field Republican is responsible for the following
“To some of the merchant princes and million
aires of New York is credited the cantetnpla-
I tion of a project at once munificent, generous,
and grand. The plan is to present to the
United States Government’s2,ooo,ooo,oo.o, and
thus relieve the nation of the public debt. I!
Hs proposed to make the gift in 200,000 shares
! of SIO,OOO each, of which A. T. Stewart, Wil
' liam B. Astor, and others, will take fifty shares,
I making up at least a quarter of the whole
| amount in New York. The realization of
i | such a project would place both Government
! and citizens in a prouder pssition than ever
Government or citizens occupied before. His
tory gives no parallel to such an act. The
Venetians held in grateful remembrance the
name of a man who, by a life-time of. personal
sacrifice and bard-faced usury, obtained means
to relievo the republic from its financial bur
dens, and placed it again upon the road to
prosperity, after a long and disastrous war.
They forgot his exacting usury and his life of
i selfishness, in the lasting benefit he conferred
upon the State. But we should have no abuses
j to forget, and. on!y the generous patriotism of
republican citizens to remember.”
An Exgiish Millionaire. —A corres
| pondent of the Chicago Journal writes: I men
tioned not long ago the death of the million
aire Gurney. His will has just been made pub
lic. I think I wrote you that it cost 875,000
i to' prove it. His personal property, it appears
. is valued at £1,100,000 (say $5,500,000), and
his real estate was enormous. Altogether he
: left property to the amount of at least twenty,
and I have seen it stated as high as seveuty
! five millions of dollars. I have gone carefully
I over the charitable bequests in his will, and
they amount to exactly the sum of five thou
sand two hundred pound, or about twenty-five
thousand dollars, the annual salary of an
American President, or an English retired
Lord Chancellor. He left a few bequests of
very small sums to old and faithful domestics,
and everything else goes to his relatives. You
will remembers that the name of Gurney used
to be synonymous with the words “philan
thropic,” “charitable,” etc. The world has
now an opportunity to judge how far this repu
tation was merited.
The editors of the country, who
have control of the new patent process for
making “ print ” paper from com-husks, hav
ing been overwhelmed with letters of inquiry
from farmers and others, give notice that their
immediate wish is to elicit information. They
desire to receive proposals from every State,
county and town in the United States, for sup
plying dry and sound husks, as the same may
be stripped from the com. The leaves of the
corn are also desirable. The husks and the
leaves may be cut up, if more convenient, and :
should be delivered at railroad stations, well
packed in bales or bags. The editors wish to
receive proposals stating the quantity that will
be contracted for, and the price per pound for
one, two or more years Address, with full
particulars, the General Agent of the Associated :
Press, New York City.

MY QUEENDOM.
By M. E» Leverlclx.
Five years have passed tince I was crowned
Queen in this fair, this dear domain ;
And ioys have mu’timied tenfold
Since I began my happy reign.
Crowned with a diadem; that eay all said
•• ’Twere a gem of wond’rous purity ;
2nd ever since its li?ht has been
As pure as when ’twas given me.
A faithful counsellor is my king,
Of his rare wisdom I ott avail:
But in all things, save - aff-iirs of state, ’
I let my own sweet will prevail.
Slander is banished from my court,
Ot untruth I r robe the inmost soul,
Here pity dwells meek eyed and kind.
And love o’er all holds sweet control.
Two jewels I have—more beautiful
Than anv dug from earthy mines:
One has the raoy’s radiant light,
And onefwlth diamond pureness shines.
If you would see my proud domain,
Come to my home ot peace and joy ;
My aladem is mv husband’s love.
My jewels are my girl and boy.

LONELY.
BY MBS. E. BOGERS.
IVailing, wailing, arose the heart-broken
echoes from that weary one, bending so lowly
over the nameless grave on the Potomac’s
frost-clad shores.
Youth’s bloom was paling upon her cheek,
and her large blue eyes, so full of sorrow, be
spoke her desolation. The dark-hued folds of
her dress covered a form of faultless symmetry,
and the close borders of her widow’s cap re
lieved a face of perfect purity.
Alone she knelt —alone, in all the majesty
of woman’s grief and dignity—that young,
homeless, friendless, penniless widow.
Deep in the earth beneath her lay the man
gled form of him who had wooed and won her.
Memory carried her back to the home, hum
ble though it was, where love and hope and
faith were never wanting. She remembered
that brow, so full of intellect; that ha:-.d, so
generous in its gifts; and how swiftly the
hours glided, each assisting the other, for the
common weal. How had she studied, when
her household duties were over ; how the un
uttered look of gratitude had thrice repaid her
happy heart.
Then called to his country’s rescue, lie went
forth, roused by the words of his patriot, wife.
He fell amid the gory dead, another holacaust
upon his country’s altar. And his girl bride
was alone—alone to battle in that more weary
strife—alone to battle for mere existence.
But duty stands upon her high pinnacle,
ever pointing onward ; and stifling her sobs of
grief, the young widow arose, strengthened by
that glorious monitor.
Her little purse was almost empty ; she was
as a stranger in a strange land. Without in
fluence or means, what could she do—that
lone, lone woman, so refined in her tastes, so
delicate in her organization ?
Smothering her griefs she went forth in
search of work. It was nightfall ere she
reached her humble lodging, and oh, how
weary, how despairing! She had been re
i pulsed, rudely by some, most patronizingly by
others, and many had curled their pious (?)
lips at her widow's garb.
She felt it vain to seek employment suited
to her education, her necessities admitted of no
delay. She knew that she could sew ; every
article of her wardrobe attested her skill, but
could she keep life and soul together by the
efforts of her needle ? She could but try.
'lhe next day she applied at the establishment
of Madame Villier and ga ned at least a roof o
cever her.
Faithful t» every trust, she soon proved in
valuable to Madame. Duty was her standard,
and she identified her employer's interests with
her own. And the two women, so strangely
unlike, became friends, and the heart-weari
ness of the straggler was gradually southed.
Both were widows. Madame Villier’s hus
band had been a victim of the reign of terror
She had seen him torn from his fireside, in
suited, spat upon, dragged through the gory
streets of Paris by the vampire rabble. And
she had followed in the crowd, forgetting self,
home and children, seeing nothing but the
bleeding, tortured form which had been her
idol. On she went, to the very foot of the
guillotine, saw the face she had loved so well
drop from beneath the shining blade. Then
the life-blood in her veins stood still, and she
saw no more.
When consciousness was hers again, hospital
attendants told her that months had passed
since that awful day, and that the children,
she had loved so well had gone to join their
father. The home the patriarchs of ner name
and race had founded had fallen beneath the
rage of the insatiate mob. A wanderer, weary
indeed was she, with no faithiu God, hjr trust
in earth forever blighted.
She called wildly for death, but no thought
of the Eternity beyond ; temptation assailed
her—no thought of the God that saved her.
Wrapped up in her grief, her cold, cold heart
refused to be comforted. Want came, relent
less hunger. She was obliged to rouse herself
—too proud to beg, too weak to starve, she
was glad to get any honest employment.
Providence guided her to the home of one
who had struggled and. triumphed. A t her
establishment she worked patiently and wil
lingly, industry brought somewhat of comfort,
and soon her softened heart bowed low before
her Gc£l.
A very aged yet firm WC®lim slie had come
to America, where the Scenes of the saddened
past would never meet’ her eye. And now
she was hopefully awaiting-God's holy time,
dragging forward no dark shadows from ths
past to darken the path of present duty.
’ And yer young companion listened —and
how light seemed her own burden in compari
son. A vision arose before her—the happy
j hope—the seizure—the mob—the widow —the
childless, homeless, maniac widow—then an
other vision, and she saw an unknown grave
j upon the frost-clad banks of the broad l.’oto-
Kiac ; but Faith, silently whispering, told her
i of fjiat Heaven Where the true patriot dwells,
I fuvirc.to'd with the fame which never dies.

Overwork. —Unwise above many is
the man who considers every hour lost which
is not spent in reading, writing, or in study ;
and not more rational is she who thinks every
moment of her time lost which does not find
hpr sewing. We once heard a great man ad
vise that a book of some kind be carried in the
pocket, to be need iu case of an unoccupied
moment; such was his practice. He died early
and fatuitous. There are women who, after a
hard day’s work, will sit and sew by candle or
gas-light until their eyes are almost blinded,
or until certain pains about the shoulders coma
on, which are almost insupportable, and are
only driven to bed by physical incapacity to
woik any longer. The sleep of the over
worked, like that of those who do not work at
all, is unsatisfying and unrefreshing, and both
alike wake up in weariness, sadness and lan
guor, with an inevitable result—both dying
prematurely. Let no one work in pain or
weariness When a man is tired out he ought
to lie down until he is fully rested, when, with
renovated strength, the work will be better
done, done the sooner, and ’ done with a self
sustained alacrity. The time taken for saven
or eight hours’ sleep out of every twenty-four,
is time not gained, but time much more than
lost; we can cheat ourselves, but we cannot
cheat Nature. A certain amount of food is
necessary to a healthy body, and if less than
that amount be furnished, decay commences
the very hour. It is the same with sleep, and
any one who persists in allowing himself less
than Nature requires, will only hasten his arri
val at the mad-house or the grave. This is
especially true of brain-work.
In Regard to Torn Postal Currency
—Those of our readers who are in the habit of
doing business at the post-office, understand,
doubtless, the strictness with which the rule
prohibiting the clerks, from receiving torn or
mutilated notes in payment for postage stamps,
&c ,is carried out. Notwithstanding all this,
it appears that unless when the mutilation ex
tends beyond a certain limit, torn or defaced
notes cannot legally be refused. Alluding to
the subject, the United States Jlail, the official
paper of the Post Office Department, says that
postmasters are obliged to receive all Treasury
notes for stamps or postage ; if clearly genuine,
no matter how torn or defaced they may be
provided that one-twentieth part thereof be
not missing—and fractional currency, if not
one-tenth part be missing. Such notes and
currency received as are unfit for re issue,
should be kept separate and distinct, and re
turned as occasion requires to the Treasurer of
the United States, Washington, in not less
than three dollars, to he exchanged for new.
